The two icons should be touch sensitive, i.e. tapping on them should take you to a missed calls listing, messages listing - or the message directly, alternatively.

Other than that, no criticism intended, I think MMS support is much more necessary than these eye-candy things, but that might be a tough cookie to implement from what I've read in various places so far.

I have no need for MMS support, but it should be possible to pass the URL from a "push" SMS message to something that can download it and decode it. Sending MMS, IIRC, is done via an internet connection. The software to do all this may already exist.

Yeah, I've been trying to find something workable to be adapted, so far I don't think there is a working MMS implementation. And yeah, it is done via GPRS/UMTS, so it shouldn't be such a big problem theoretically.

So I've read, but so far no work for 2.6 has been done on it it seems.

Yeah, but real problems, should be workable. I've been meaning to contact a local kernel/system hacker I know for a long time to pay him to work on these, but keep procrastinating. I'd probably have to get him one Uni too etc. so not sure if I wanna do that... huh.gif

Maybe there's another way to get it done, that's why I thought a larger web call to get it could help, but am skeptical about it too... rolleyes.gif

Hey,

Got X working, touchscreen working...managed to connect on the wifi so i know that's working.

I was wondering how your phone tools can produce a nice shiny graphic even before X has been installed? Could you enlighten me...? smile.gif

  • Missed call icon
  • Received SMS icon

Further what occurred to me: The two icons, being active, i.e. leading to missed calls, and SMS lists, should then be dialable.

I.e. a missed calls icon => missed calls list => scroll to a particular call => dial

Same with SMS => i.e. SMS list => scroll to SMS => read => reply or call back

Wifi working great apart from after a suspend.

Where are the suspend and wake up scripts kept?

I found after suspend i have to

CODE
rmmod acx
modprobe acx
/etc/init.d/networking restart


to get a connection.

I would like to change it so when it wakes up it performs this. Or maybe when it suspends to do the

CODE
rmmod acx

On a slightly similar note, a request for comments also:

I've been thinking about things that I consider missing, and how to get them done. What do you think, would a bounty system be good to motivate some skillful hackers to tackle these. From what I've read on the web so far lately, it actually seems bounties are counter productive in motivating the development of Free Software, so I'm not sure.

But I was thinking, I could easily offer, let's say 200 EUR for each of the following:

1. MMS
2. Getting the camera to work for photos, videos, with a suitable X app

I'll add 25 UK pounds to that.

Is it worth it? Or not likely that someone will take up the task?


Dunno.
I've had a bounty here for nearly a year; http://www.liddicott.com/~sam/?p=76
with other offers it's now at about $600. Work is (and was) being done but as far as I can tell it has no effect on the rate of work.

I'm now getting wary of a liability of timeless bounties I'm building up, so I'll have to set 1 year as a deadline. After that it's up to my discretion.

I dunno. It's not been as bad as i expected. I've just been doing a ping test to try an see how long it's lasting...so far i'm on sequence 1200 and it's been going about 15 minutes. So far so good.

Also, I've uploaded a new titchy-hardware-support, that turns on the speaker on the outside of the lid (I'm assuming most of us make calls with the screen closed).

Thanks a lot for this, this is really beneficial. Up to that point with the lid closed, it was really quiet...

On an associated note, it still seems to me, the phone is very quiet when ringing. htcunid volume 5 seems to make no difference. But using the same ringtone under Windows Mobile with the volume brought all the way up results in a really loud ring, whereas under Debian the ring is still relativelly quiet. Do you experience the same?

There's a volume setting in /etc/default/titchy-phoneui-base - try setting it to 100.

Hi EB!
Finally I got my TitchyMobile working (based on the package from shikomura).
But, I cannot connect to the internet via USB.
I have a Debian install in a virtual PC. I connected the PDA to the virtual PC (and the connection was successful: Windows didn't see it anymore), applied all the commands, found in wiki.neilandtheresa.co.uk, but no success.

Do you have any ideas?
Thanx!

Try using tcpdump on the debian pc; maybe try booting from a live CD.

My xda network interfaces is:

CODE
allow-hotplug usb0
iface usb0 inet static
  address 192.168.2.2
  netmask 255.255.255.0
  gateway 192.168.2.1
  post-up echo nameserver 192.168.2.1 > /etc/resolv.conf


and on my desktop pc:

CODE
allow-hotplug usb0
auto usb0
iface usb0 inet static
        address 192.168.2.1
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        post-up echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward; iptables -D FORWARD -j ACCEPT; iptables -A FORWARD -j ACCEPT; iptables -t nat -D POSTROUTING -s 192.168.2.0/24 -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE; iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s 192.168.2.0/24 -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE


I still have to do
ifdown usb0 ; ifup usb0
if I re-connect the xda, but it works on it's own the first time round.

Hi,

Was just wondering about the acx driver. Does titchy come with the latest version?

This tutorial here (http://acx100.sourceforge.net/wiki/Distribution_list/Debian) says that the acx-100 driver is in the contrib repo and was just wondering if i should try install it.

I've found wifi to be stable for browsing simple websites but try an apt-get install xxx and you're lucky if it lasts 20 seconds...

Hi all,

Firstly great job on getting Debian running on the Universal, might squeeze some more life out of the handset yet.
I am a linux beginner, but quite happy with commanline stuff and happily have Titchy installed on my dual partitioned SD card.
I'd like to get UMTS data working as I'm on an unlimited data plan so no problems apt-get'ing over the air.

I have edited /etc/default/titchy-phone-daemon.conf to GPRS_APN="general.t-mobile.uk"
And I've also added "user" and "pass" to the chap and pap secrets files.

When running:

CODE
pppd pty 'socat - tcp:127.0.0.1:1702' noauth defaultroute usepeerdns debug nodetach


Everything looks positive, primary and secondary dns are picked up but the following lines do appear:
Could not determine remote IP address: defaulting to 10.64.64.64
Cannot determine ethernet address for proxy ARP

The terminal finishes with a flashing cursor after:
Script /etc/ppp/ip-up finished (pid 1486). status = 0x0

I have to Ctrl-C to get back to prompt... Any suggestions where to go next?

Many thanks!
Alex

I heard, that it isn't so easy: the chip in the Universal is not the same as the chip supported by this driver.
Therefore you must have other/modified files also (mem.c for example), and this files aren't debugged, but they are from the driver originally written for the hp hx4700, which is also a little bit different as the Uni. So, the small differences and the modified files together cause the stability problems. I tried to contact with the last people, who has updated and modified the driver, but he doesn't answer....

At that point you are connected. Move to a different terminal (alt+right/left) and try to ping something. Alternatively remove "debug noattach" from the pppd command and it will run in the background.

Uploaded a new version of titchy-phone-daemon. If an MMS message is received, it will be treated as SMS, but the URL of the MMS will be passed to the event.d scripts as $4. What happens next is someone else's problem, I'm afraid, but I think downloading and decoding a simple picture message should be quite simple.

Edit: This project can apparently encode, decode and send MMS.

I've added a package of network settings and scripts.

It takes care of the USB settings, GPRS (including dial-on-demand), and WiFi (including powering it down on suspend, and lowering the speed for extra stability).

It's not fully tested at this stage. Anyone want to give it a try?

Edit: Also fixed a bug in titchy-phone-daemon that stopped GPRS working.

Edit2: Another titchy-phone-daemon update. Running "/etc/init.d/titchy-phone-daemon stop" now unregisters from the network, allowing "flight mode".

I will try titchy-network-settings.

But, dpkg says, that titchy-network-settings depends on titchy-phone-daemon and titchy-hardware-support. If I try to install these packages, dpkg says, that they are already installed by htcunid package (therefore there is a conflict). Should I replace the htcunid packages with the two, mentioned above?

Mod:
I had to uninstall the htcunid package, and now I have all the packages installed, and I did ifup usb0, it said: ifup: interface usb0 already configured, but ping doesn't work....I have to think, that something with my Windows isn't okay, but I don't know, what.

2. the apt-get didn't find any packages, could you post please your sources.list file?

The default sources.list from my rootfs:
CODE
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian testing main
deb http://debian.neilandtheresa.co.uk/ titchy/

(my personal sources.list uses my ISP's Debian mirror, which wouldn't be appropriate for you).

I'm going to install titchy-desktop and xserver-titchy but apt-get didn't find them. What I'm doing wrong?

I have a working WiFi connection...

[edit]

Ok, i've done apt-get update and now apt-get found packages - i'm downloading it smile.gif

New version of titchy-hardware-support. If you've noticed these bugs, upgrade.

Is there a default root password in titchy?
I installed xserver-titchy, icewm and xdm and now i can't log in as root anymore, but only as the regular user i created.
IIZIIm
Never mind, i did something like FN-'Letter"-p and logged in in console as root.
Is this a bug: In xterm and xdm-login i could not login as root?

Hi,
One small question now: What is the differnce between debian ARM packages and debian ARMEL packages?
Why can'T we use a normal ARM package on the Universal?

Thanks!

It is about what they are compiled for, eabi or oabi.

You must go to console and set password for root (passwd) or you can't log in...

That's what i suggested and did.

I somehow doubt that it's any better. Just in case it is, I've just cross-compiled and will test..

EDIT: I dont see any difference :/

Hey,

I know it might be obvious to some but i don't think it's been posted here so:

There is a bug with the touchscreen. If wifi is enabled in wince at the time of booting into linux the touch screen will not work.

Hope this helps someone.

I compared to opie, gpe and self compiled kernel, they lasted only few seconds. Since titchy uses qtopia kernel i think, i did not know if it is better.
I installed about 200mb of software with about 5 interruptions. When interrupted i repeated a command and continued, which was quite comfortable.

Yes... the 2.6.21-hh20 kernel is a bit better, but not much due to the driver limitation in the dirty driver code. I know for a fact that there is work being done to get the Universal supported in the git kernel as mainline for 2.6.26, once the problems with asic3 and the touchscreen driver are fixed ( a new kernel is LOG overdue for the Uni).

Hopefully there will be interest enough to get the newest ACX driver from the SourceForge project adapted with the new kernel for the Uni, since there is significant improvement in stability with the new driver.

We will see.
